Twin Peaks – The Pilot

You can’t touch this.

TV pilots come and go, some earning show orders, many vanishing forever, but one stands as the undisputed king.

Or, more appropriately, as the queen.

Twin Peaks changed everything about TV, and the revolution started April 8, 1990, when ABC let David Lynch wrap Laura Palmer in plastic.

The ensuing show, with two seasons, a polarizing movie, a diary (which I bought), then a third season 26 years later, will forever be the cause of arguments.

But return, re-watch the launch, and tell me it wasn’t the greatest pilot ever.

If you can, you’re either lying, or just wrong.
